Provide control over who can use the SNODEID parameter
With SPOE, the SNODEID presents a security vulnerability. The SNODEID is hard-coded in the process in clear text. Anyone authorized to use CDZ and able to read the file where the SNODEID is coded, typically in the process library, can create and s...
Issue a message when CDz reached NODE Specific Max PARSESS Limit

1. The default scroll amount on various panels is set to PAGE. I think the CSR setting is more flexible. As the panels do not remember your settings, I h...
Allow greater flexibility when amending Secure+ parms
Having a process which is reliant on a person logging onto an ISPF panel to update something like a TLS setting is no longer tenable in a modern IT environment. Automation and self service are the order of the day and the way Secure+ updates are b...
